He was concerned and listened to why I felt I needed help in controlling my weight problem. We set up a plan and have followed it with great rewards. I see them for support and information with medication use. I am thoroughly satisfied with my care.

Great experience with the program and staff. Encouraging physicians! And most importantly, the doctors have years of experience doing this and they are all physicians. That makes a huge difference in success rate. This isn't some gimmick place that doesn't work or you just gain your weight back....more
